As you know, one of the most important things for diabetic cats like me to do is to keep track of our blood sugar levels. To give you some idea of how blood sugar fluctuates, I will keep you updated on mine.
For the week, I saw some fluctuations, but lately, my blood sugar levels have remained fairly constant, at slightly over 300.
There’s only one really bad reading for the week, with the morning reading for March 1 coming in at 424. That is way too high, but it looks like that was an outlier.
I had four good readings, though, to offset that bad one. I got four readings where my blood sugar readings were in the 100s. I am very happy when I get those readings, and so is my human.
And my average blood sugar reading for the week is tolerable, coming in at 283. This is below the threshold where bad things start to happen to my body so we will take that.
Still, my human doesn’t think these blood sugar levels are good. So he’s going to work with the vet and look at other resources to help get things better.
Ideally, we want my blood sugars to be in the 100s consistently. That is still higher than what you would see with a non-diabetic cat, but that’s not who I am. I am diabetic, and so we will tolerate a higher blood sugar reading than normal.
My human sometimes gets frustrated, not at me, but at my blood sugar readings. He really wants me to be healthy and happy, and when I’m not, it makes him sad. He would be happy if he could just give me two shots a day, and test once or twice a week like some lucky diabetic cats. But it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen with me.
